New Appeal Over Shootings
29 June 2011, 10:37
The family of one of the teenagers killed in an alleyway shooting have made a new appeal for help to catch their killers.
Mohamed Abdi Farah, 19, and Amin Ahmed Ismail, 18 (pictured right) were shot on Milton Keynes' Fishermead estate just after 10pm on Thursday 26 May 2011. Mohamed died at the scene, Amin died in hospital the following day.
Amin's sister Anisa (pictured below) and Amin's uncle Hodale Dame spoke to reporters at Bletchley Police Station on Tuesday 28 June, to ask for anyone with information about their deaths to come forward.
Nine people have been questioned over the two teenagers' deaths, but police haven't been able to charge anyone. Four people have been released without charge. The other five people arrested have been released on bail.
Hodale Dame said he hasn't been able to sleep very well since his nephew was killed. "As soon as I go to bed, I'm thinking about Amin and we are really asking anyone who knows any information to come forward," he said.
Hodale thinks someone has crucial information that could help the investigation. "It didn't happen inside closed doors, it happened outside," he continued. "I know the Fishermead community have helped the police a lot, and we appreciate that, but please come forward with the information that will help police."
